    Agreed. For now I will only post patches for code that really _is_ broken.
    I've already learned that from the discussion with David Miller.
    This way I might miss some places getting the comparison wrong, but
    changes will be less intrusive.

    However, I definitely want to see a 2.4.x someday that is able to run
    for more that 497 days.
